HP Touchpad Screen Stuck While Installing CM9
I tried to install cm9 on my touchpad and I followed this tutorial: http://www.webosnation.com/how-insta...ouchpad?page=1
I have a problem, I followed each step and everything went great till the double penguins came up. The first time I tried this, the touchpad rebooted itself to WebOS, so I shut it down, hold the power button and volume up button, and I proceeded the whole "cmd" part for the second time. The double penguins appeared and I realised it stopped. I looked and it wrote that the cm9 filename was wrong...it had to begin with update-cm . So I waited for the device to reboot again so that I could change the name of the zip file, however the screen is stuck. There is a black screen and a lot of text. Everytime I push a button, there is a writing on it.
For example, when I push the volume up buttong this comes up:
^[[4~[ 2432.551116] gpio-keys: volume up button pressed
[ 2432.701070] gpio-keys: volume up button released
I tried to reboot it but the device does not shut down. It is stuck, and everytime I push a button, it just writes that I pressed and released the button.
I tried to download WebOS Doctor, but I cannot find a valid download link, however I do not think this will help, because I cannot shut down the device!
Let it bleed!
I had a lockup, though not while installing Cm9. I had to let my battery bleed out completely, then device booted properly.
Worked out! Pressed the homebutton and the power button (this time a little longer than a couple seconds!) and it worked
